Gain extra points
If you reach a point where you’re totally surrounded by enemies who are going to crash into you on their next move, press the space bar to fire, even if it isn’t your move. Sometimes, if you’re quick enough, you will score points for shooting some of the enemy fighters before they crash into you. – fruitrach
General tips to keep in mind
When you first start the game there is a gem somewhere on the field to grab. If it not a purple or white gem I suggest starting the game over. Points are hard to earn so purple gems are important to grab. White gems are rare is grabbing them will also help.
Purple Gem = 50 points.
White Gems = One extra life.
Green Gem = Cloak.
Blue Gem = Downgrade of Enemy (white ships are the lowest).
Red Gem = EMP pulse of 2 square in every direction, defeating any ships it hits. – Galonski64
